A Melton sporting group will donate its entire week of “ball money” or income to breast cancer research.

Melton Twilight Tennis Association secretary Andrew Dobson said it will dedicate its funds to the cause from competitions which started the week of November 26. Mr Dobson said the initiative was first mooted by the association’s women’s competition.

“The MTTA committee thought this was a wonderful idea, and agreed to use the ball money for the entire week of tennis, and donate this money to the cause,” Mr Dobson said.

He urged anyone interested in donating to contact the association meltontta@gmail.com
